Weekend Reading

Today I read a beautifully written piece in the online Huffington Post, entitled "My Secret Grief.  Over 35, Single and Childless" by Melanie Notkin.  (Google it!)

Highly recommended and moving.

It is because I did not want to live with that grief that I chose to become a SMBC, and despite the really difficult, frustrating and agonizing moments I have experienced in this last month, I do not regret a single moment with Raphaela, and look forward to many more.

I so agree with you. as I hurtle towards my 50th birthday I am so thankful that I was able to have DD - the alternative for me would have been a life of regret. (Notice I said "for me" before anyone jumps down my throat - I also respect my friends who decided not to).

Yes, MSM let's say that before the hailstorm begins: I respect everyone's decision for their own lives, because it is not my place to judge others.
I am glad for my choice, and have no problem saying it was the right thing for me.
